Gimp trim

I took in a large antique job in which the customer selected a light blue velvet. I showed him a Conso gimp chart to pick a matching gimp from. I didn't know that many of the colors on my chart had been dropped. Now, I'm stuck with the fabric unless I can find the gimp somewhere else (he won't take double cording). I've been looking at E-Bay, and other online sites with no luck so far. The gimp was called M55 on the outdated Conso chart. Anybody know of a good source with a wide selection of colors?
The color is a powder blue.

Don't know if this will help, but I'll throw it out there.

Thanx Pikachu, a couple of those look pretty close. I'll call them tomorrow.

Try Dubois
they have some of the discontinued gimp

If, the first person you talk to says they don;t have it, have them double check
When I called a couple months ago for a discontinued gimp, I was told they didn't have it, then they called back a few minutes later to say that they did, in fact, have it

414-483-1002

Way to go Joy! Dubois had it. This will keep me from eating a fabric order. Thanks.

I have a customer that wants me to replace about half of his eisenglass. How can I do this and get the zippers to match up? Should I also replace the zipper half in the window pieces that I am not replacing? I am also concerned about getting the new pieces to fit good without wrikels etc. so what is the best way to pattern the replacement windows?

Welcome coolgee

You probably need to start a new thread in order for the people who can answer your question to see it.

Good luck, Dennis
